Über dieses Spiel

Etwas bösartiges treibt sich heute Nacht durch die Straßen...
Die Erde wurde vom menschlichen Raubbau, von unentwegten Kriegen und von einer Invasion Außerirdischer schwer mitgenommen. Die Bevölkerung hortet sich in riesigen Metropolen zusammen und die allererste dieser Metropolen nennt man nun Mega Primus.
2084: Utopia ist verloren, soziale Unruhen und Anarchie beherrschen Mega Primus. Teuflische Außerirdische terrorisieren die Stadt. UFOs schwärmen durch Dimensionstore. Die Stadt liegt unter Belagerung von einem unbekannten Feind.
Ihre Mission: als X-COM Commander sollen Sie die außerirdischen Aggressoren in Schach halten und ihren teuflischen Plan durchkreuzen. Aber Achtung! Durch Infiltration gelangen selbst Außerirdische zu Zugang zu Politik und hinterrücks können Gangs, religiöse Sekten und sogar die Polizei Ihnen das Leben schwer machen!
Der Himmel wird von der Außerirdischenflotte verdunkelt, seltsame Kreaturen versetzen die Stadt in Angst und Schrecken, das Chaos regiert... Wilkommen im Krieg, willkommen in der Apocalypse.

Many many years ago I bought the original CD-ROM for this classic game and must have sunk a couple of weeks worth of hours into it on my 233Mhz Pentium II (in between sessions of another Microprose great; MOO2). It's cutting edge hybrid real-time / turn based combat, isometric viewpoint with a full 256 colour pallette and impressive resolution options were amazing at the time.

If none of that made sense don't worry, both the game and that PC are old. The point is that I returned to this game through Steam just as excited as I was that first time around, not enitirely due to nostalgia but because the game packs so much content into something that by today's standards would require you to pay for it's kickstarter, then for an overpriced pre-order bonus, 4-5 DLCs and finally to sell your soul to come close.

The graphics are dated but the gameplay is timeless.

Basic Story
Strange dimensional portals begin appearing and the government fears it is the sign of a new imminent alien invasion. In order to deal with this threat the X-COM agency is made active once again. You are the commander of X-COM.

Basic Gameplay in 10 steps
1. Manage every day to day activity of X-COM: train agents, buy equipment, fit vehicles, sell loot you stole from that wacko cult surplus equipment.
2. Launch everything you have at every UFO that is spotted.
3. Re-load when you realise you didn't buy enough ammo so your Valkyrie is basically dead because you failed point 1.
4. Learn to pick your battles and track alien movement
5. Get a pay rise for stopping the Government from being brainwashed into thinking the aliens are 'good'.
6. Pump out R&D stations to build unique equipment and craft.
7. Stop picking your battles and start taking the fight to the enemy by employing tactics such as 'stacking 4 teams of 6 agents on top of one another, putting them on 'aggressive' in a choke point and just pressing super fast forward, returning with a sandwich 5 mins later to find you win'.
8. Toy with the enemy for a while whilst you raid the alien dimension to destroy every UFO there.
9. Finish whatever research you had been missing as you are a completionist. Although trying to catch a live popper has become harder this late in the game... Sod it, do I need it really??
10. Wipe out alien threat by total annihilation, don't allow for negotiation or an amicable victory (as sci-fi has shown us time and time again, it's either them or us!)

Favourite part - trying to beat the game on higher difficulty settings after allowing alien infiltration into an important faction like Marsec, Megapol or Transtellar. Definitely makes for an interesting play through!

- keinerlei Informationen wie man im Spiel vorgeht
- riesen HUD


Klar das Game ist mittlerweile 19 Jahre alt und in jeder Hinsicht veraltet. Und ich werde mit dem Spiel nicht warm. Auch das fehlende Tutorial fördert das Gefühl. Weil man regelrecht reingeschmissen wird.
Hardcore XCOM und Retro Fans können hier ruhig mal ein Blick drauf werfen, aber für mich ist es nichts.

This is the pinacle of X-COM games. This is the most in depth game in the series, combining fine tuned combat with the micro management of your resource, building and personnel. By far this is also the most "sand boxy" game as you can conduct raids on corporations and even the government itself at any time (and thus be prepared to suffer imeasurable consiquences). This game is highly advanced and takes time to master, but has litterally an unlmited replayability. If only the new X-COM games could be this deep.

XCom Apocalypse is my favorite of all XCom titles, old and new. And - no, not because of nostalgia.

While I'm certainly cherish the challenge of the first two XCom games, and enjoying the tactical shootouts of the newer ones... By the terms of complexity of the gameplay, Apocalypse still has no rival. Well, maybe the first Banner Saga has something common in terms of complexity - but it's another setting and totally another scale of events.

If you're still wandering, what I'm talking about - it's all of the game economics, your actions and their consequences. Yeah, the things I hate in the new XCom games for their inaptitude.

In Apocalypse, you can hire enough soldiers and buy enough venicles to get any unfriendly down. You'll be provided with almost sufficient amount of bright heads for your R'n'D as fast as you want - and without need to wait until someone in the "counsel" decide to throw a bone to you... But, of course, the price is there too. And that price has a name - Responsibility.

You can brake down all the structures in the city block, on some mission while hunting invading aliens... and then it turns out that those buildings were belonging to your main ammunition supplier... not anymore. Or you can raid a local gang hideout, take all their stuff and then sell it on the market... drugs in the first place. And then the Megapol will be asking you questions, and remnants of that gang - asking for your blood. Or you can produce some guns, then sell them on the market - to drop down all guns prices - and goodwill of other marketeers towards you as well.

Almost every organization in Megacity (except for politicians) is vital for the city well-being, so, while you don't have to be really nice with everybody, once you'll turn any of them down to aliens, or simply make them your enemies - you'll do yourself a great problem. In the Enemy Unknown, for example, sometimes it is even beneficial to lose a country or two - you'll faster take some perks for controlling all continent... In the Apocalypse Megapolis, every corporation is invaluable, when it is on your side, and very dangerous, as an enemy.

With all that - no doubt, XCom Apocalypse is a very old game, from the time when even Win95 was uncommon. Some basic gameplay features that works everywhere now, such as tutorial, or underdog difficulty level... aren't applied. Visuals, and the need to tune DosBox, out of any doubt, will turn down the most part of the modern players.

But if you'll look past this, you'll find the XCom being a powerful organisation, with the great capabilities and responsibilities as well. You can send helluva of tanks and rocketeers to meet alien invaders with the ocean of fire... and pay dearly for all shambles you'll make to the city property. As of overall expression, it's like switching from the nowadays Bundeswehr or British Army to the Soviet one. Or changing your BB-gun with .308 barelled rifle. Sure, even the Soviets were not all-powerful. But who's got the better chances to bring down the invasion, and return fire into enemy lair? Same scale goes with the rifles analogy.

My mark is 8/10. Game's quite outdated, and even at start had some flaws, due to the limited development time and pressure from publisher. Yet so far we're still out of better options, despite all the years passed.

Game is top, however this port is bugged.
I've played X-Com: Apocalypse back at DOS times and still have the CD lying around somewhere here. I've even managed to get it working on DOSBox. However since CDs scratch more and more I've bought the Steam port during the monster summer sale.

Sadly the port is bugged, it doesn't run on fullscreen for me without major lagging and graphical issues, however it runs windowed. It's tiny but ok. But when, during a tactical games round-loading screen the game asked to put back in the XCom CD I realized: someone sadly did a bad job with the steam client.

If you can get the games CD from somewhere try getting it to run on dosbox yourself, will probably work better than the steam version.

Oh boy, saying that this game is a priceless gem would be the understatement of the century, considering that this game is almost twenty-years-old and is still absorbing almost 400 hours of my time is an impressive feat, also this is only my time on this computer, as I have another 600 hours on other systems combined. I started playing the original X-COM when I was six and almost instantly fell in love with it, however, with this game It has so much more content (and even more planned). The thing is, I absolutely love this game, it is likely my favorite of all time, the only one competing with it is the original X-COM. If anyone from Firaxis sees this review, create a poll on your X-COM forums and ask about how many would like to see a remake (or even a HD remastering while adding the features planned for it) for X-COM Apocalypse, I promise you, it is worth a financial investment, as it will sell like hot-cakes. This is one of those few games that is so good its just begging for a remaster. If you want to see a X-COM Apocalypse remake, give this review a thumbs up!

Equip a team of twelve dual-wielding commandos with power swords and mini-missile launchers, pack them all inside a bunch of hoverbikes and go raid a temple of alien worshipping cultists while yelling "XENOS LOVE IS HERESY".

Do you really need more of a recommendation?
